Group Camp 2021

Now that we are back to face to face Scouting, and life is starting to get back to normal, we have decided to hold a Group Camp.

On a Group Camp, ALL Beavers, Cubs & Scouts from the 12th Eastleigh are invited to join us for a weekend of camping, regardless of which Pack/Colony they are with, or if their sections leaders will be attending

This year, Group Camp will take place on the weekend of 10th – 12th September, at Cranbury Park. We aim to be charging no more than £30 per head for this event, which will cover the cost of the site, food, and activities.

Bear Grylls – Scouts Made Me

Face to Face Scouting Suspended Again

Click here for further details

Due to all of Hampshire (excluding the New Forest) being moved to Tier 4 controls, as from 26th December 2020, we regret that this means all face to face scouting must, once again, be suspended, as we move back to the Red Readiness Level.

As always, we will be keeping a close eye on developments, and will return to face to face Scouting at the earliest opportunity.

Please do keep an eye on the indicator, on our website, for our current status.

To all at the 12th Eastleigh

Face to Face Scouting is Back

We have come out of lockdown, and are now back at Amber Readiness, meaning we are able to return to Face to face meetings.

Your Section Leader will be in contact soon, if not already, to advise what this means for your Section.

Remembrance Service 2020

Welcome to our virtual remembrance service. As lockdown prevents us holding our normal service, we recorded this service on Tuesday 3rd of November, as we strongly believe that it is important that we remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.

COVID-19 Readiness Indicator

We have added an indicator to our site, to allow all members and parents to keep track of the current “Readiness Level” issues by the National Youth Agency.

Clicking on the indicator will take you to a page with an explanation of what it means.

Please do keep an eye on this, as it will provide an idea of the kind of activities we are able to conduct with our members

COVID-19 – Letter From HQ

Dear All

Following the announcement of a four-week lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November, the National Youth Agency (NYA) has now issued guidance about what this means for all youth sector activity. From tomorrow, Scouts and all other youth activities will move to Red readiness level.

 

This decision by the Government means that there can be no face-to-face activity with young people or adult volunteers. Only online meetings can be delivered until further notice.

 

We appreciate this is very short notice and is disappointing for many who have worked so hard to get their sections back together, and had fantastic plans for their young people over the coming weeks. We also understand and sympathise with those who now have the difficult task of cancelling meetings. We can’t thank you enough for everything you’re doing. Please be assured we would’ve liked to have given you as much notice as possible but this is the earliest opportunity. The NYA website will be updated to reflect this change at 4pm today.

 

We expect these restrictions to last until 2 December, when the lockdown is currently scheduled to end in England. In the meantime, we have loads of resources and guidance you can use to keep Scouts going online:

 

  • You can still take part in #RaceRoundTheWorld by clocking your miles in line with government guidelines, fundraising through social media and running the online activities

 

You can keep an eye on the readiness levels on our website.

 

For now, we must prioritise public health so please keep Scouts going online and let’s prepare for life beyond lockdown.

 

We’d like to thank you for adapting to this change and for keeping Scouts going online wherever you can – it makes a massive difference to the lives of our young people.

 

Please stay safe and look after each other.
